Records Committee Review:



Date Posted (1st round): 25 Aug 2004 1 acc, 6 not
Date Moved to 2nd Round: 30 Oct 2004 1 acc, 6 not
Date Completed: 5 Jan 2005 Not accepted


Summary: Because the behavior and habitat  were more consistent with a Common Black Hawk, which was reported and photographed in the same place a month later, the committee decided that Common Black Hawk couldn't be eliminated as a possibility.
